Advent Garland and Other Goodies

My new favorite is this Advent garland from Cost Plus. I found it while shopping with dear friends of mine who visited this weekend.


Is it too soon for a Christmas post? :)


Any ideas for what to put inside each little stocking, mitten and hat?


Another treat from Cost Plus...a canister of yummy Gingerbread Cocoa Mix.

We found these at the Dollar Store!

It is never too early in my opinion for a Christmas post! :)

What to put in the stockings/hats? How about a Scripture each day? Or an idea of something fun to do together - bake cookies, watch a Christmas movie, make cards, etc... Amy over at momadvice.com does a Christmas activity jar and pulls one out each day - we did not do a jar last year, but I planned a fun little thing each day all month and it was SO fun! This would be a great way to incorporate it!

Or, maybe mini ornaments for a Jesse Tree?

Love the little stockings! Never to early to prepare for holidays! Especially the birth of Jesus! Those little Christmas trees are too cute! I wonder if I could make some of those. Hmmm. Inspired "Homespun Christmas"? :)

I love those ideas from homespun for the advent garland. I saw that at World Market too, very cute! Every kid needs to get a piece of candy once in a while, not every day, but once or twice during the month would be fun.

Sorry we missed co-op on Friday. We went to Kennewick this weekend and left at lunch time on Friday. Originally we weren't going to leave until Friday evening.

I love your advent garland! We don't have Costco but I'm thrilled to find out from Christian's comment that World Market has them. Hmmm, what to put inside... perhaps slips of paper, each one outlining a family activity to do to prepare for Christmas (bake cookies, make cards, make/hang a wreath, etc... they can be simple activities).

love your little goodies! I like the trees the best and will be going by our dollar store SOON!

Very cute little garland. I think all the best ideas have been mentioned... scripture a day and crafting "tickets". You'll pick the perfect thing :)

Hope that you had a great weekend with your friends!

How adorable is that advent garland. I am going to head over to my Cost Plus and see if I can snag one, well I will pay for it of course. Thanks for the idea.

Agh! I can't find the garland at World Market/Cost Plus online!!! Has anyone seen them anywhere else online?

They're not selling them online--only in stores. I checked.
